Energy Law

 For more than 50 years attorneys at Rudman Winchell have worked very closely with clients engaged in a great variety of legal matters involving energy. From distribution of petroleum products and propane to alternative energy and electrical developments, regulation and distribution, our attorneys have experience in traditional and non-traditional energy projects.

We assist clients in virtually all phases of the petroleum and propane business throughout Maine and New England, including a developed expertise in federal as well as state law. Over the years we have worked with clients in siting, operating, and buying and selling various kinds of alternative energy developments, including contracting for power delivery, waste disposal, and environmental compliance. Most recently we have been involved in several wind power development proposals both for private parties and developers as well as for municipalities and landowners.

Legal issues relating to energy matters also arise in a great number of other contexts. One of the most common is environmental impact. Rudman Winchell attorneys have expertise in storage tank issues, transport issues, bulk storage, supply contracts, and the environmental impact of development and energy usage. Whether from a developer, municipal, landowner, or business perspective, our attorneys have worked on projects of all kinds throughout the State of Maine.

At Rudman Winchell we understand that the efficient delivery of energy to all of the residents of all of the communities of Maine, as well as to commercial and industrial users, is of critical importance to the economic wellbeing of the State.
